Bunting love

Hello all , hope your all well, life is ticking on ever so fast isn't it, January and February have flown by and the girls have gone back to school and college today after half term so all was quiet at home
I have been busy lately setting up a little business just for bunting, i have always sold a lot so it seemed a good idea and i do enjoy making it ,there isn't an awful lot of thinking when making it so i find it quite therapeutic , i know there are a lot of people making bunting out there so i want to try and come up with new ideas to keep it fresh



I have really enjoyed making these flower buntings which are very popular and i love that i can make them in such a wide range of colours and fabrics and i think the little crochet flowers really finish them off






I have also been making these battery operated lights made with plastic cups and fabric



These are a lovely idea and very easy to make although very sticky with the glue but worth it and they look very effective
This very pretty bunting has been made with gorgeous vintage lace and decorated with floral bias binding, fabric, ribbons and button trims



I also made some hexagon bunting too which i love

Please do pop by my new shop , i have lots for sale and adding new bits and bobs daily, my shop link is www.etsy.com/shop/lovesbunting
Thank you so much for popping by and for all your lovely comments too 
Much love  Francine xx

Pretty things

Hello all, hope your all well,just a short little post today popping in to say hello
 Christmas  seems like ages ago now and i am certainly ready for lots of new adventures this year and spring feels like just around the corner
These are some really gorgeous fabrics i purchased recently, they are so pretty , i am not sure what i 
will make with them as i do not want to cut them up they are so pretty

I have been making some new patchwork and enjoying working with these different shapes

I feel a quilt coming on !!

Just love the colours of all these, they are so pretty and dainty


I do love spring and all the spring flowers 

It is such a lovely time of year with new adventures ahead, if you fancy popping by my website the link is www.folksy.com/shops/patchworkandlace

Christmas

Hello all, hope to find you all well, its that wonderful time of year again, my favourite in fact, the children have broken up from school and college so a lazy week is planned with a few visits planned
I usually go for a red and white theme and this
year is no different

Our kitchen is looking all pretty too






Its been a busy year for me and my little business, i decided to reopen my website and mainly sell from there in future, i will still sell on Etsy but i want to focus on my website really in 2017 and i am thinking about doing a few fairs i have maybe left it a bit late to book as these events soon fill up but if i can start with a couple that would be great, here are a few things i have been making leading up to Christmas





Christmas day will be spent at home with an early start opening presents and then a lazy day after lunch drinking, eating and watching tele and Boxing day will be spent at my brothers so much to look forward too.
I have been making these gorgeous patchwork quilts, i am getting better at them and finding them less of a challenge these days



Patchwork and crochet hangers are also very popular



Well thank you for popping by and for your lovely comments , i do appreciate it
